We stayed for three nights and loved it here. Our villa had two rooms and a great view from a private terrace. There is a small pool in front of the villa which is very nice. The hotel is on the mountain/hill which is nice because it is quiet and in a very natural surrounding. The hill is difficult to... More

Was supposed to stay there for 2 nights for my birthday and lucky me had some friends who made a surprise reservation in another hotel for me and my wife. The Villa that was assigned to us is not even close to what they advertise in their website, very poor maintenance and totally different layout. Though in house staff are... More

Amazing view of the ocean, very clean and great breakfast. This villas were the highlight of our trip, we stayed 4 nights, but we wanted to stay more. The town is very nice and the beaches are incredible. The hospitality of the owners was amazing. We will definitely come back!

We stayed there for 3 nights, it was good but we were left just a bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong, its a lovely place but its more a B&B than the boutique hotel they market it as on the website. Its under new management , they're great guys but it they're their to surf, not run a hotel. The... More

We stayed in the villa the second week of january and had a fantastic time! Santa Teresa is beautiful and the Gumbo Limbo - including the amazing view - made sure we had the time to relax. Nice food, relaxed owners who also took us to the beach and made sure we had great fun during our first surf lessons!

My husband booked our honeymoon at Gumbo Limbo. After all the wedding planning, it was nice to not have to worry about the honeymoon plans too. Since we honeymooned in May (Costa Rica low season) we had the whole place to ourselves. It was so peaceful and serene, away from the noisy cars on the street below. But the best... More

Wow! We could not have chosen a better place to stay while in Santa Teresa. We stayed in a small villa overlooking the gorgeous swimming pool; it was the most incredible view! Staying here is not like staying at a big traditional hotel, they only have a few rooms, which was perfect because it was so private. Beware if you... More

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and loved the setup. The villa was super private with an amazing view of the ocean through the trees. It's close to the main road in Santa Teresa but the winding driveway gives you enough elevation to feel completely separate from the low-key beach town hustle on the streets below. When... More
